6 Warning Signs You May Be A Victim Of HIV
HIV is a human immunodeficiency lentivirus that causes HIV infection and AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). The infection causes progressive failure of the immune system which allows certain infections and diseases to thrive. The virus develops slowly and is highly dangerous. The infection spreads through blood, semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk, pre-ejaculate or saliva.
Although the virus doesn’t manifest through specific symptoms, it may cause the 6 following ones:
Fatigue is a symptom of numerous diseases including the HIV virus. The infection will decimate your immune system and make the body work more, which will result in fatigue and low stamina.
- Headaches and sore throat
As the immune system fails, you become more susceptible to infections such as sore throat and problems such as headaches. Although both may be symptoms of another ailment, they can be a sign of HIV infection, especially if they don’t go away after a while.
If you’re running a fever that doesn’t seem to stop for days, it may be cause by the virus.
- Brittle nails
The HIV virus affects your whole body including your nails – if they’re suddenly weak and brittle, you may have been already infected.

The HIV infection causes pain in the muscles, joints and bones all over the body.

The virus may manifest through a variety of skin problems such as incurable rashes.
